Our Haverford online school adds convenience to students by adding hours back into their day, allowing them to free up time for extracurricular activities.
At a conventional brick-and-mortar school, children have to do time-consuming tasks, such as riding the bus or doing homework after school. We understand that day in and day out, that can be exhausting for a family. We solve that problem by encouraging a learning environment that is simple and time-efficient. Whether you're looking for a high school, middle school, or elementary school, contact us.
Structure and time-management are important factors for success in our education model. Our virtual school does require that a parent or guardian is at home during the day to work alongside their child. We refer to this position as the students learning coach. This is so that the learning coach can monitor the student's progress and manage academic schedules. PA Virtual provides each learning coach with all the support and resources they need to be a successful learning coach. If you want to learn how to be an effective at-home learning coach, read our "Tips and Tricks for Being Your Student's Learning Coach" article.
PA Virtual delivers instruction via synchronous and asynchronous classes. Students can attend live classes (synchronous) or work in a self-directed environment supervised by a dedicated teacher (asynchronous).

We understand that students will be utilizing laptops and other technologies that we provide to families when working with our online school. We agree that students should be taking breaks from looking at their screens throughout the day. PA Virtual makes sure that all students have more than enough breaks in their day. This allows students the freedom to go outside, move around, and get some fresh air. Also, our instructors provide hands-on assignments, such as workbook pages, music lessons, and fun science experiments.

We want our education to inspire all of our students to pursue their interests, reach their potential, and ultimately develop into productive citizens. PA Virtual ensures that all of the core subjects are fully covered in our K-12 curriculum. Additionally, our curriculum also includes building foundational music and art skills. Recently, it has been common for schools to cut back on or completely drop their music and art programs with the purpose of focusing on the core STEM subjects. Although we understand this train of thought, we believe that a well-rounded curriculum is important for the development and long-term success for our students. Whether your child enters the workplace, pursues higher education, or serves in the military — we make sure that all of our students are well prepared and ready for the next step.
